Add option to glidecondor_addDN to auto-extract cert DN
For situations where we want to add the DN of a cert/proxy that is on the local disk,
having glidecondor_addDN automatically extract the DN from the file would be
both handy and would reduce human error.

Comments below, rest look ok to me.
Any reason not to use strip() over [:-1] in line below? strip seems more safer to me
Maybe this is personal preference,
seems more readable than

So what if a version of openssl starts spitting out dn without newline? The current code will break but if you use strip() you are covered. Also I dont know of anyone that does string matching of dn with trailing spaces. I would say it was not a good decision to allow trailing spaces in DN, but thats not upto me now.

extract_DN() is broken for rfc proxies and needs to be fixed.
My test giving it rfc proxy returned

I remember vaguely fixing a issue something like this in the code elsewhere couple of years back. Just cant seem to recollect exactly where. Maybe we can just reuse that?

I thought the CN=XYZ were deprecated, but I jsut checked, and you are right...
the RFC ones indeed use that syntax :(
Will have to fix this, it seems.
However, the only reliable way is using the
Should I assume it is available?

I have implemented the extract_DN function using the M2Crypto library calls;
(should have done it from the start!)
It now properly climbs the chain, and extracts the first non-CA DN from the file.
I also converted all newline removal lines to use rstrip.
Parag: Can you please check if there are any remaining issues?
